It looks like they are going after the high end market space (medical, Xray, etc). I wonder what the technical background/history is for the process at the foundry or BYD? Do they have a proven track record at either foundry or BYD for these types of devices? Is this an effort to produce a lower cost (higher margin) device or just an extension of BYD's portfolio? Curious.

I don't know. I doubt it, although the specification (from sunlight to dim moonlight) sounds extreme. I expect the military have been there first. I'll ask, but mean time is any others in this forum know for sure, please chip in, pun intend.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
